Looks like old relay racks being re-purposed for something more useful than supporting electronic equipment..... NICE!

You are right. The idea was to build the thing out of parts on hand/stuff in our garages. Except for the PID, RTD, element, pump, spa panel and some fittings, that is what we did. Made for a heck of a puzzle at times

Bsquared...there is an android app out for the bcs by the way. I like that you are using the bcs. It is so much easier than separate PID's and probably cheaper too!

I use the iPhone app, but there is at least one android app

I really like the versatility of the BCS, this is the third system Ive built around this BCS, the first two where 5 and 10 gallon HERMS systems with separate HEX. This system I put the heat exchanger in the HLT. Its nice as well to be able to switch temperature probe assignments with out any re-wiring.

Do you have a build thread or links to your guide for the e-hlt?

Here is my Brew Rig. I call it the Bruton because the frame is a old Futon frame that I converted.

I did not make a build thread for it but I got all my ideas from here.

It's a 1500 watt element, controlled by an auberins pid. Heats 9 gallons straight from the well to 168 in like 2.5 hours. If I'm in a hurry and don't have time to prep I use hot water at about 110 and it's to 168 in less than an hour

I'll post a few pics this weekend

Here are a few pictures of my new brew rig.....I spent the whole winter building it and will be brewing my third batch on Saturday. RIMS brewing is totally new to me but I am learning a lot and if a few brews will have all the bugs worked out
